Maintenance and calibration services for defibrillators DEA DESA

The importance of maintenance and calibration of defibrillators

Defibrillators, like any other medical device, need a certain maintenance; according to regulations on cardioprotection of the Autonomous Communities It is mandatory to keep the AED defibrillator and its components in perfect condition for use. 

Over time a defibrillator can suffer variation in calibration, it is important to perform periodic calibrations in a defibrillator, to ensure correct operation. We must have a correlation between the selected energy data with the actually supplied energy data.

For this reason, we recommend carrying out a periodic calibration of class IIb medical equipment, since with these calibrations / verifications we will be able to certify the correct state of the integrated defibrillator systems, ensuring their proper functioning.

Repair and maintenance of defibrillators DEA DESA

The corrective and preventive repair work included in the defibrillator maintenance, must be carried out by qualified personnel, with specialized training and experience in technical service of DEA DESA defibrillators. 

In Proyecto Salvavidas we have been working for more than 10 years to guarantee, through our technical service, the perfect maintenance of more than 17000 DEA DESA defibrillators installed in Spain.

We are an organization that is committed to the quality of the service and the products we offer, which is why, from the technical and electromedicine department, we offer our service of calibration, verification, repair of defibrillators and electro-medical equipment.

For this, all our equipment has a calibration plan, which allows us to guarantee the traceability of our repairs and calibrations guaranteed by ISO 9001, 45001, 13485 and 14001. 

Calibration of defibrillators with courtesy defibrillator

Our service defibrillator calibration includes the collection of the client's defibrillators with a delivery within a maximum period of 3 days. During the repair time, the client will have at all times a defibrillator courtesy of the Lifeguard Project to always have their cardiac rescue point active. 

After calibration of the defibrillator and verification of the perfect functioning of the equipment, the client will receive the accredited official calibration certificate together with the preventive maintenance report of the defibrillator, which will serve as proof in case of inspection by Health of the correct maintenance of the equipment, as is reflected in Royal Decree 365/2009 of March 20, which establishes the conditions and minimum requirements for safety and quality in the use of automatic and semi-automatic external defibrillators outside the health field.

Penalties for not complying with the cardioprotection regulations of the Autonomous Communities

In all the Autonomous Communities, sanctions are imposed for failing to comply with the DEA DESA defibrillator standard, In the Autonomous Community of Aragon, for example, sanctions are imposed for failing to comply with the maintenance of DEA defibrillators, through Decree 31/2019 of February 31, which provides that as of today, August 21, 2019, it is PUNISHABLE by the Inspectors in Labor Risks of the Government of Aragon the absence of defibrillation devices (DESA) in the places described in the Decree and that is attached in this link. Obligation to have and maintain AED defibrillators in public and private spaces as they can be among others: 

  • Large commercial areas with more 2500 square meters.
  • The airports.
  • Train and bus stations located in towns with more than 25000 inhabitants.
  • The educational centers, sports areas and swimming pools with more than 300 people of capacity,
  • Workplaces with more than 250 workers.
  • Public centers with capacity greater than 500 people.
  • Residences with more than 200 beds.
  • Hotels over 100.
  • Local police patrols
